Who motivates the motivators

So you write articles and blog posts to encourage, teach and motivate others. After all this is what blogs are for, are they not? They are there to  motivate someone else to do something. To learn, to change, to be encouraged.

Your blog is read by many who look to you to keep those great articles coming. To continue to inspire them. Your readers come to your blog, before their cup of morning “get-up-and-go” java.

Why? Because you motivate and inspire them. But who motivates you?

Leadership

Have you ever had one of those days, or weeks when you just do not feel motivated to write anything? You run out of blog post ideas. You feel down and miserable.

Yet you have the extra burden of being relied upon to motivate others.

I once read a statement that is so true: “Leadership is not for sissies”. This is so true, and applies to blogs as well. Blogging is not for sissies.

If you are a leader in your niche, if you are a guru that others look to for answers, then you can’t crawl up in a corner and cry when things get tough, You are a leader, others depend on you.

So then, who motivates or what motivates you when you need motivation?

Self Motivation

Often motivators rely on themselves to keep motivated. Here are a few tips that you can employ.

  • Surround yourself with positive people. You will feed off them.
  • Create goals that are attainable. Short goals that are reached are a great source of motivation.
  • Choose to be positive. Often the difference between misery and a positive outlook on life is down to a simple choice.
  • Maintain good mental health.
  • Don’t doubt yourself or your abilities.
  • Remember you’re human, things happen. Deal with it.
  • Have some one you can go to, to share your problems. A shoulder to cry on
  • Never forget God, for me He is a great comforter.
  • Read motivational blogs, books, magazines. Other blogs are a great source of motivation for you. Read your readers blogs. You will be surprised.
  • Remember the times when you did something really good. Feed off that.
  • Look at the people you have influenced through your blog. Be motivated by their success.
  • Have fun. Don’t feel pressured to always be at the top of your game. Bad days will come. Find and do things that you enjoy. Things that cause you to laugh. Things that relax you.
  • Take a break. Everyone needs time to recharge.
